Fix Windows Registry - Can Free Software Do The Job?

By: Kok Choon
Computer enthusiast like free stuff, whenever computer has a problem, they know how and where to fix the broken part, with freeware! When Windows starts to slow down or behave abnormally, enthusiast would recommend all kinds of free software to fix Windows registry, but do they really work? Can it be as good as paid commercial registry cleaner?The answer is NO, in terms of effectiveness and efficiency; Free registry cleaner is free because they are not performing well and the vendor force to release it freely!Think for moment, if a commercialize software does not perform better, why should we waste time and effort paying them? They must be better to survive.

You can download all free registry cleaners, try to fix windows registry with them and then install any commercial registry cleaner and scan again, I guarantee there are still many miss errors! Else you won't wast your time looking at them.I am not saying freeware no good, infect I use them all the time, but something like registry cleaner, I would prefer the commercial version. You should try the test and compare the free stuff with commercial software before drawing your own conclusion, there are just too many opinions crowded you from the truth, try it yourself is the safest approach. To save yourself some time, you can visit various registry cleaner review sites, look at different screen shot and at least gather some ideas. Pick few commonly recommended software and try to fix windows registry with them. Most commercial registry cleaners came with auto backup, but I would still recommend you to perform some manual backup before proceed, just as a precaution.(C) Copyright 2008 Kok Choon - Feel free to reprint this article in its entirety as long as all links and author resources box in place.
